My passanger side ball joint is bad and i was looking to maybe up grade while not loosing my ride quality if found a company called MEYLE they have a "RE Enginered" ball joint and or control arm setup
MY 1st question is this a reliable company
2nd does any ony have these
3rd if so are they as durrable and reliable as stock.
also my GUIBO (flex disc) is bad i was wondering if there is a performance upgrade of if stock was sufficiant

I've heard of them and I believe they are a good compony.

As for the guibo, I wouldn't go for a stiffer one. It absorbs vibration and prevents gears from be stripped by flexing a bit when there's a sudden, really high torque load (like dropping the clutch). It flattens out impulse torque. It certainly dosn't make you immune to stripping gears though! so don't get the wrong idea.

You wont gain any horsepower or torque from a stiffer one.
